Itty Bitty Hearts

I am teaching a couple of classes at my favorite local quilt store again.  This is the store sample I made up using Cindi Edgerton's Itty Bitty Hearts pattern.  It is a Foundation Paper Piecing pattern.  This is the technique I will be teaching - a skill building class!  I love FPP!!!  It is really worth mastering this skill as it opens up a whole new world in piecing.  It really is easier than you think too.
I love how the solid color hearts turned out to be so bright and cheerful.
Hope you are all having a bright and cheerful day.

A Mug Rug

 Hello!  I signed up for a mug rug swap!!!  I had so many ideas traveling around in my head.  It is funny though that when it comes to crunch time (procrastination definitely over) I ended up doing something totally different.
 I liked the idea of a coffee mug and tea cup! Then the "I like coffee" song came to mind and I thought it presented itself for some embroidery ideas.
Here is the finished mug rug!  The swap is tonight.  I'm excited!!!  I wonder whose wonderful mug rug I will get?
